We stayed close to Canary Wharf while visiting London.....This area has great modern architecture, the most prominent financial institutions have their offices here. There is a good balance between business and leisure since there are several good restaurants and bar in the area. There is also a mall and the Canary Wharf Underground station which takes you right into central London in less than 10 minutes....We found this place very convenient and enjoyed the atmosphere....

Visited London this weekend and decided to watch the marathon from Canary Wharf despite the protestations of my partner who claimed there was nothing worth seeing there; maybe he knew about the large shopping mall.

We were both taken aback by this new zone which I feel has been well done and offers a lot of attractions. I will definately revisit and need to research good places to eat as there appeared to be very limited good quality restaurants; I feel sure these are hidden away somewhere.

Primarily a working area, the buildings are nice to see, but there isn't a whole lot else. Not typical London architecture and the bars are packed after work with finance professionals. Better places to hangout are to be found in central London.

Change from the old with this purpose built city.Enjoyed wandering around the old docklands with the towers in between.And being stunned at the swarms of office ants scurrying round the high rise malls at lunchtime.
